Everyone thinks my older two are gorgeous. Ones a snowcap and ones a blanket.
But my two yr old... his coloring is ugly. He's mostly white. But he has the heavy mottling to and the pink eyes. But Im not riding color.

They are great horses. Here in Fl you see very few at cutting shows. And most of the people don't give me the time of day. Especially since I ride without spurs. But they have a whole new respect at the end of the day for appaloosas.

It's not a breed I don't care for - it's the whole package. There are stupid, spooky, stubborn and ugly in every breed.

Never trust a horse without a tail, it's just not right.

Now that's just not right. My gelding has a very sparse tail, and he is one of the most trustworthy horses I've ever ridden. He's four, and my mare is 17. I trust my gelding more than my mare. Chopper rarely spooks, period.

After buying and breaking Chopper, I will never own another horse that isn't an Appaloosa. He's smart(almost too smart), loyal, trustworthy, athletic, and loves his job. He's an awesome trail horse, and easy keeper, has extremely hard feet that only need to be trimmed every 12 weeks. And he's not all that ugly, either.

Yup, lighthearted joke and I didn't mean to directly offend anyone, I am sure your horse is trustworthy Kassierae.

Don't worry, I don't trust horses that are under 11 hands either and that would probably offend all the mini owners out there

I never really liked them, until I met the one at my old barn. She wasn't one of the "pretty" apps, but she was the sweetest horse there. Old and dotty, but sweet.

I'd get an app., especially one of the "ugly" ones (I think they're ****ed adorable, personally), in a heart beat, if it was sane, sound and we clicked.

I haven't liked the temperaments of any of the appys I've met. That doesn't mean there aren't nice once but if I were horse shopping I would concentrate my search elsewhere.

You can't really judge a horse mentally by its breed. Every horse is an individual and I feel that breeds are mostly physical ;) Just depends on the horse, folks.

Physically, most of the appys I've ever seen in person IMO are ugly. Cowgirl, yours are gorgeous though! :) And I know what you mean by showing those cowboys up... All I get is negativity from cowboys when I bring my fancy showhorse (arab) to do cow work ;)

appaloosa, opinion, riding
